Imagine relaxing on a sun-drenched terrace savouring the first drink of the day. Imagine a swimming pool, inviting, encouraging, waiting to be disturbed. Imagine sitting in the shade of an olive tree with not a man-made sound to be heard. Imagine a sky so blue you’ll forget all about grey. Imagine the smells and sounds of a barbecue sizzling away. Difficult? Not at all, when you’re at Finca Pichon ....
|Finca Pichon - the croft of the pigeons
Finca Pichon was once the harvest home of a local family who used it when gathering their olives, walnuts, and grapes. Today it is a luxurious detached Andalusian-style villa set in its own grounds of four acres.
Although offering all modern conveniences, including air-conditioning throughout, it retains its original rustic charms and ambience.
Sensitively restored in the local manner, the finca has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite), a very large lounge with open fire, and a kitchen complete with cooker, fridge, freezer, etc.
Outside, the finca nestles on the side of a beautiful and peaceful tree-lined valley and is surrounded by its own groves of olive and walnut trees interspersed with muscatel grape vines. A paved terrace with panoramic views of the Sierra mountains leads to the private swimming pool and garden area. There is a large barbecue (which is certain to be the focal point during your stay), garden furniture and sun loungers. The original drying beds, once used for ripening grapes to provide raisins, have been carefully retained to add interest and charm.
The Finca and gardens are fenced and there is ample off-road parking for several vehicles.
Bordering the Sierras de Tejeda y Almijara National Park and situated near the village of Canillas de Albaida with its excellent restaurants and shopping facilities, Finca Pichon enjoys a rural setting that is ideal for walkers and nature lovers seeking tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The finca is approximately 50km from Málaga airport, only 45 minutes to the resort town of Nerja, and a similar distance to the beaches and attractions of the coast. The historic and larger city of Granada with its Alhambra Palace is within an easy drive to afford the opportunity of experiencing the Andalusian serenity and friendliness of this most Spanish of areas.

Within the local village of Canillas de Albaida there are some excellent restaurants: the Plaza restaurant in the main square by the church, Bar Cerezo, Ramon and Antonio’s bars on the road out of the village towards Cómpeta and many others.
There is an even larger selection in the nearby town of Cómpeta. In Cómpeta, the restaurants Pichon and Rustica are both good, as is the Hotel Balcon de Cómpeta.
This is an excellent area for walking and attractions include the Fabrica de Luz, Fabrica de Cómpeta, the remote village of Acebuchal, Casa La Mina, and various other walks and drives as described in “25 Walks around Cómpeta” (copy available at the finca).
